Leadership Training



Meet and foster relationships that will last a lifetime. We are a community. We are a family. We invite others to join us and explore our natural environment through outdoor recreational activities, creating experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. 


Obtain skills that will prepare you, not only for your next outdoor adventure, but for landing that "dream job" after college. Leadership skills are necessary for every occupation. Solid judgment, decision making skills, and conflict resolution tactics are imperative for success whatever the path you choose. 


Engaging in lifelong outdoor adventure starts with Auburn Outdoors. We have the "bug" for adventure and we want others to "catch it" too! Dare to push yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


Connect with nature, and with others as you learn tools and tactics to contribute to the preservation of our wild lands. Gain a clearer understanding of how you can impact the world around you, while forging new friendships, acquiring new skills, and working on a better "you."

About the Program

The Leadership Program is a series of trainings designed for potential trip leaders to learn many aspects of working for an outdoor recreational program. The trainings will consist of many topics that pertain to outdoor leadership, but also focus on skills that are transferrable to other areas of life. Trainings are offered to current Auburn Outdoors staff.
